A field of top class trotters highlight Friday's card of harness racing at The Meadowlands, including the seasonal debut of an Open-class millionaire.
DWs NY Yank is the epitome of a war horse. With no fancy pedigree upon which to rely, the now eight-year-old altered son of Dilbert Hanover has amassed over $1 million in career earnings the hard way boasting 40 wins among the 78 on the board placings in his 120 lifetime starts. DWs NY Yank was on the sidelines for most of 2016 and is making his first money start since last June for owner/trainer Ron Burke and partners Howard Taylor and Weaver Bruscemi. Joe Bongiorno is listed to drive.

Among those looking to challenge is 2-1 favourite Wind Of The North. The seven-year-old son of Cantab Hall had another profitable year for owner Joann Dombeck in 2016, picking up $234,010 on the strength of six wins in 26 starts. Sean Bier drove him to a rallying second last week at Dover in his first start of the year and is back aboard on Friday for trainer Jenny Bier.
